Sautéed Swiss Chard with Slivered Almonds & Browned Butter: In a small sauté pan, melt 2 Tbs. unsalted butter over medium heat. Add 1/3 cup slivered almonds, reduce the heat to medium low, and cook, stirring often, until the nuts are golden and the milk solids in the butter turn a nutty brown. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice. Keep warm. Sauté the chard as directed in the basic recipe, replacing the garlic with 2 Tbs. finely chopped shallots. Sprinkle the almonds and butter over the finished chard and serve immediately.
